A practical and helpful book that provides a comprehensive approach to intervention for more able individuals with autism and Asperger Syndrome. The book is enhanced by the use of cases and diagrams and has a practical orientation. It will be of great benefit to professionals and parents alike." -Fred R. Volkmar, MD, director, Child Study Center, Irving B. Harris Professor of Child Psychiatry, Pediatrics and Psychology, Yale University School of Medicine; Chief, Child Psychiatry, Children's Hospital at Yale New Haven.

"With the Ziggurat Model of Intervention, Drs. Aspy and Grossman have synthesized the research on program planning and functional behavior assessment into a useful and user-friendly decision model leading to the development of truly comprehensive, functionally determined educational and behavior support plans. Highly recommended." -Peter F. Gerhardt, EdD, president, Organization for Autism Research

"Comprehensive and well-researched, but also understandable and accessible, the ZM addresses the multi-faceted needs of children with AS and HFA in the school setting. Its very premise is that while there are commonalities, the characteristics of autism impact every student differently. This program is ingenious in that it creates an individualized plan and a framework in which to implement it. It is a well-oiled mechanism that smooths the wrinkles out of the school day for every child. In addition, as a parent it's exciting for me to think of the multitude of ways we can further use the information we gain about our kids through, for example, using the UCC (Underlying Characteristics Checklist). The ZM is not merely a support system, but a celebration of what is unique about our kids on the spectrum and a springboard for their future." -Kristi Sakai, mother of three with Asperger Syndrome and author of Finding Our Way!
